I am glad to announce the release of VEGASPython 1.0 including a new feature VEGASSceneDetect.
For users VEGASPython is now easy to install and behaves similar to other VEGAS scripts (only difference: they are located under tools/Extensions and not under tools/Scripts)
The main new feature for users is VEGASScenedetect:
VegasSceneDetect analyses video clips either in the mediapool or on the timeline and determines scene changes. At each scene change detected VegasScenedetect either cuts the clips or creates a subclip. VegasScenedetect can be configured to your needs
For developers VEGASPython provides more new features:
VEGASPython is now based on PYTHONNet and CPython - Full compatibility with standard CPython packages and modules
Python 3.7 , openCV and NumPy are already included
you can use your own Python installation
you can use any Python editor that supports CPython
Debugging of Python code with debuggers that support debugging embedded python is possible (e.g. WING Python IDE)
VEGASPython scripts behave like Python modules and are imported like Python modules"
reloading of modules is supported to avoid restarting of VEGAS after every change
configurable post and pre commands for debugging scripts
call VEGASPython scripts with Vegas from the commandline
Very much thanks to Jan @xjirj22, Peter_P (somehow the @ does not work for your account) and @Former user for beta testing the solutions.
